Gaming the Iron Curtain

I'm surprised I haven't mentioned this book here yet! Gaming the Iron Curtain is a book which details how game development took place in Soviet Czechoslovakia in the 1980s. It's a vital history of an area of computer games which is almost entirely disconnected from the gaming industry. @coleoptera recently recorded an interview with the author, Jaroslav Švelch, about the book for the Critical Distance: Keywords in Play podcast, which I am enjoying listening to very much.
If you like, you can play an English translation of The Adventures of Indiana Jones in Wenceslas Square in Prague on January 16, 1989 where you, as Indiana Jones, kill a cop with an axe on like the fourth turn.
